About jeff m. solomon
Sharda and I take great joy in this unique property a - piece of Florida's heritage! On the bay where the beach meets the bay. Courteous and friendly. When you are here you are at home. HERE IS THE EXPERIENCE WE AIM TO PROVIDE FOR YOU: Think Bee Wop a Doo Dah. Think 60's retro with unique themed condominiums in a small private Florida jungle retreat. Take a break from the large, faceless, Mc Hotels. At Whispers you will NOT lose your family between the lobby and the pool! This is old time Florida. Escape the swarms of strangers, crowded pools and relax in the ambiance of a more genteel environment. Lush jungle gardens and huge trees to shade you, and cool breezes fan you by the pool. Does this sound right for you? Then you will love a Florida Heritage vacation, a blast from the past. The Bee Wop a Doo Dah. We will take you back to the days when the family piled into Dads Buick Roadmaster 'Woodie' and headed south for an adventure to the pristine beaches of the Gulf of Mexico. Relive an era before the large 'Box Hotels' popped up on every corner. Before McDonalds. An era when the corner soda shop was the place to hang out! This blast from the past has just 8 units set in a lush tropical garden. Every unit has a unique themed decor, such as Oriental, Africa, Hawaii, England etc. This is real honest to goodness American apple pie, old time, down home Florida with all its eccentricities. Whispers is a very small and extremely private bay front property. Lose your cares. Feel human again! Your patronage helps us preserve our Vintage Florida Heritage. The property is updated while still preserving the essential elements, colors and feel of our Florida heritage.

Wonderful family vacation!!!!
My family and I have been vacationing in Florida for the last five years. We love Florida but had not yet found a place that we felt like was a "must return" place. Well, we have now. The house was as advertised, the accommodations were very nice and very roomy, we had six adults and a 10 month old. We will definitely be returning for many years to come. Thank you so much for your hospitality.
It was our pleasure to host you and your family.
Thank you for being so respectful towards our property and for taking care of it so well!
You are welcome back any time - and I look forward to your future visits.

Good size, close to all amenities , nice pool Very nice people
As advertised and we will go back
Very poor conditions. Site wouldn’t let me leave a zero star or I would have.
This unit was not at all what was portraited on the website. Mold in unit and filth among other things wrong. Very disappointed in conditions as well as the owners response. We did submit a formal complaint along with pictures of the conditions to VBRO. Mold can’t be fixed easily. We could not stay nor would we ever subject our family to such conditions for the health and safety of them comes first.
I am very sorry for your concerns, however they are not accurate. We do NOT have mold anywhere. We do have regular Health Dept inspections of our property.
It may be that the house being 25 ft from the water, that what you may have mistook for mold was in fact the smell of the sea air.
I cannot really comment as there is no odor whatsoever that my wife or I can detect. I am only speculating in the absence of any physical evidence.
We really enjoyed the place. Centrally located, excellent views.
Thank you for the review. I saw you guys enjoying the fishing and dolphin watching from the dock.
I love that view myself.
Please come back and see us again, we appreciate that you took good care of the house.

dreadful experience worst ever
Arrived 1 day late due to Hurricane Irma to find the Villa is not as represented .
The place is absolutely filthy and the pool is even worse I already had my e mail about cancellations so I knew there was no use complaining.
After 1 night we left as the place was not fit for purpose
Please Please stay away
But I am going to speak very bluntly here and a lot of people reading this may think that I am completely out of line.
Mr. Baird - for 2 weeks before your arrival right up until the hurricane hit us - we left messages - to ask you to contact us on account of hurricane Irma .
I left messages about the mandatory evacuation of Treasure Island and the potential risk if you came.
We had a mandatory evacuation order and we only got power back 2 days before you arrived.
I emailed 2 days before your expected arrival to you to let you know that we were cleaning up from the storm, that the power had just been restored - and that the building was not damaged.
We called all our guests beginning 2 weeks before the hurricane right up until the day it hit and then we lost power for 3 days - every single one of our guests rebooked and responded to our calls - except you!
You did not respond to any of our many, many phone calls or emails.
Finally on the day of your arrival - you emailed to say that you would be arriving!
We suffered a lot of debris and damage to the pool = which we drained in order to remove tree limbs - and other debris.
And the City of Treasure Island itself took 3 weeks to get all the debris removed. from the curb!
It is terrible that you made this false public review about the condition of our resort - 2 days after a tragic disaster .
Not once - did you call us when you were here. Not even to let us know that you checked out!
You did not even contact us ahead of your arrival to see if we were open! I sent you an email to update you.
This review is the first we have heard from you since you arrived!
As a personal observation - a normal person - knowing that Florida and the place that they were traveling to - had been hit by a hurricane resulting in the biggest mass evacuation in US history - would at the very least - call and find out if we are still in business.
As it happened it took us more than a week to recover - clean up - refill the pool and get back to normal.
Indeed our pool service company was without power for more than a week. It took them 2 weeks to get back in business and to service our pool!
Your review is cold and heartless (stupid?) - and you should take some personal responsibility for your own lack of communication and common sense.
All our other guests re-booked they all had a great time and enjoyed their stay.

"Shelling" is a favorite pastime, as is dolphin
watching and spotting the wide variety of spoonbills, sandpipers, herons, pelicans and wild birds "clamming" on the seashore as you wiggle your toes in the soft warm sand.
A short stroll puts you right in the heart of Treasure Island Village. Here are the little delis, ice cream parlors and restaurants, the tiki bars on the beach, the one-of-a kind boutiques, and cafes, and of course the ubiquitous little seaside shops with their sponges, shells, and sunscreen lotion.
Plan your busy days. There is a lot to do.
Parasail, jet ski, water- ski, deep-sea fishing, diving.
Why not enjoy a romantic dinner or take a casino boat cruise on the Gulf of Mexico?
Rent a bicycle and cycle the nearby Pinellas Trail for thirty miles or more.
Jog it or blade it, the choice is yours.
All your dreams of a perfect vacation await you at "Affordable Beach Condos."
